I think this is true for pretty much any gaming console or PC. If a publisher requires it, you will need internet connection even on PS3 or Xbox 360. I am guessing nextbox probably just provides a system level support for it (not smart enough to know what that can be).
Now even reputable sites are reporting on rumours, there's no smoke without fire.
While its not as bad as always online mandatory you can bet that developers will require either one time check or always online to try and combat piracy.

If you played Sim City on a Dell PC then you can't really blame Dell for EA's missteps with Sim City, can you? Same here. This provided this latest rumor is true. I think this rumor sounds more plausible than others but again, it is just a rumor.
That's not a good thing, especially when companies like EA will enable it for Single Player.

Online required for online services is hardly a downside, they already said in Playstation Meeting that you didn't need to be online to play single player.

I don't get the "supported but not required". It's either required or it isn't, other than that developers can already force the "always online" on their own in their current gen games so it's not like anything would actually change.
